Water Cooling H70+SwiftechH2O-220 - Help!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. Iam about to start a little and basic water cooling system and I need your help.

First the spec I got:




I got a Corsair H70 and I dont want wast him. I wanna buy a Swiftech H2O-220 Edge kit, cuz Iam too noob to buy the pieces separately. I want "CrossFire" this two water cooler system. The H70 will be where he is, and the H2O-220 will stay in the bottom of the case cuz I guess it will not fit at the top.

Can someone help me with water flow following this picture?



Maybe later I buy GPU water block to end the water cooling system.

Questions:
- Its possible to change the tubes of H70?
- How should I set the water flow?
- I got buy a barbs and more tubes to change the stock tubes of H70?
- Which best custom barbs and tubes for H70?

The best advice I can give you is this: Sell the H70 and buy a Rasa WC Kit, it has everything you need.

I guess its better buy 2x240mm rad and work with them. But the tubing work will be big :S

The swiftech kit you're talking about will work fine for cooling your CPU, in which case it replaces the H70. there is no good reason to modify the H70, it's too expensive and not good to do anything with once you have begun a custom water cooling loop.

If you are going to add GPU blocks down the road, then you will need to add a second radiator unless you start off with a 360 and fast fans.

It's a little bit unclear what you're trying to accomplish though, Sorry. It sounds like you want to use the Swiftech H20-220 kit with the H70, which is next to impossible (not financially or effectively feasible). You could keep the H70 for the CPU, and use the H20-220 kit for watercooling your Crossfire setup, but that would require wasting the CPU block of the H20-220 kit and adding two GPU water blocks for your cards.

Some people use 2x240mm Rads I was thinking do the samething but using h70 and swiftech 220 rads. My finally decision is get the Swiftech Kit or even some EK kit like EK-KIT H3O - Supreme HF 240 to cooling only the CPU, the gpus will stay in air.

Now Iam confused about performance between the Swiftech kit and EK kit. But first I need know if some of these Kits are so much better then h70, I cant find any comparison of them :S

They'll all be better than the H70 kit for sure, if for no other reason than that you're doubling the radiator surface area (more or less, depending on the rad in the kit).

Other benefits:
Larger liquid volume giving more thermal resistance (same idle temps but much lower peak temps)
Can be quieter even on full load (depending on setup and fans)
Expandable to cover GPUs down the road
Individual parts can be replaced as needed, no need to dump it and start over again

As far as performance and other comparisons between the H70 and other options (including the H20 kit you're interested in), I point you here:

http://www.maximumpc.com/article/how...nd_constructed

Now, there is a lot of debate about the results of that test, and some of the conclusions are pretty wrong, BUT if you're new to the field, and would like a good general lesson on the different approaches to the hobby from a "journalistic" source, than that should be sufficient.

There are also the recommended links sticky at the top of this forum.
